Hair Transplant Surgery
by Dr. Rafael Arenas

Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon

Because the hairline is one of the most important areas of concern for many transitioning women, we offer both hairline advancement and hair transplant surgery.  In some cases, both procedures are recommended in order to obtain optimum results.  Dr. Cardenas most often advances the hairline while also working on the forehead.  However, patients with significant male pattern baldness may need hair transplant surgery.  Dr. Rafael Arenas is our specialist for this meticulous procedure which can sometimes be performed in the same surgery alongside Dr. Cardenas.

Dr. Rafael Arenas completed medical school at the Universidad Popular Autónoma del Estado de Puebla where he also completed his internship. In Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico Dr. Arenas completed his training in general surgery at one of the largest and internationally well recognized hospitals in Mexico, Hospital de Especialidades del Centro Médico Nacional de Occidente del Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social.

Dr. Arenas completed his specialty of Plastic Surgery at the same medical center. Not only did Dr. Arenas get exceptional training with world renowned plastic surgeons in Mexico he also had the opportunity to work in Marin County just outside of San Francisco, California for part of his plastic surgery training.
